The Alaska Range

Alaska Range
Alaska Range, the new book from Carl Battreal

The Alaska Range is the most dramatic topographic feature in Alaska, and among the greatest in the world, with North America’s tallest peak. We all know that, but you don’t really know it until you see it. On the next show, we’ll be talking about the Alaska Range, and the effort to capture it in a new book. Photographer Carl Battreal spent years photographing these immense mountains and the extraordinary weather and light and put those pictures in a new book. The book also includes essays by some of Alaska’s most noted writers and adventurers. In the second half of the show we’ll have the treat of hearing from one of them, Art Davidson, a member of the first climb ever to summit Denali in the winter.

Eric Bork, or you can just call him “Bork” because everybody else does, is the Audio Media Content Producer for KSKA-FM. He produces and edits episodes of Outdoor Explorer, Addressing Alaskans, as well as a few other programs. He also maintains the web posts for those shows and many others on alaskapublic.org. You can sometimes hear him filling in for Morning Edition or find him operating the sound board for any of the live broadcast programs. After escaping the Detroit area when he was 18, Bork made it up to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where he earned a degree in Communications/Radio Broadcasting from Northern Michigan University. He spent time managing the college radio station, working for the local NPR affiliate and then in top 40 radio in Michigan before coming to Alaska to work his first few summers. After then moving to Chicago, it only took five years to convince him to move back to Alaska in 2010. When not involved in great radio programming he’s probably riding a bicycle, thinking about riding bicycles, dreaming about bikes, reading a book or planning the next place he’ll travel to. Only two continents left to conquer!
